    You guys are really eating up your machines doing this kind of work with them. This is brush hog work. Your being extra hard on the spindles, belts and overheating the hydros.

    very very true. but he's probably the same position that I am where he doesn't have enough work to justify the cost.so on the rare occasion where he has that kind of work he has to make do .it's not something you have to do everyday because it would go through your mower very quickly .

    I hit a piece of 2 or 3" pipe last year. Didn't bend the blade but the pulley that drives the blade shattered. (cast iron) A piece of it knocked a hole in the fuel tank.

    ran a baby deer over at a cabin I was cutting...they will lay in tall grass areas to hide from preditors (no scent when that young) & it was next to the porch & the damb thing didnt even twitch...I had my blades high as they would go cuz of grass being 2-3ft high...thought it was another rabbit but when my helper picked what was left up to throw it in the woods it had hooves on it! Oh & golf balls are cool & it realy pisses off the rich folk when you crank the ball 150yrds the other way! lol
